How to Make a Moist and Delicious Eggless Yellow Cake with Lemon Frosting

Eggless Yellow Cake pieceCooking or baking for anyone with food allergies can be tricky enough.  Sometimes, you give up on the ingredient known to trigger the allergy or try substitutions, which may or may not work to your satisfaction.  Lately, I have been experimenting with ways to avoid eggs when baking cakes. A recent effort proved delicious and simple with the yellow sheet cake I’m about to share with my eggless yellow cake recipe.

My recipe will produce a cake more on the order of a pound cake with a denser grain than a light cake like a typical one of a layer cake.  Still, this cake is about the easiest one you can whip up since it involves no creaming of butter or margarine.  All you need is your electric mixer to blend all the ingredients and then bake into a nice sheet cake for when the urge for cake calls.

My cake is so easy.

Another wonderful recipe that you also should explore is my best yellow cake.  It is moist, delicious and makes a fantastic layer cake even without using cake flour.  I hope that you also will give it a try.

No Work Eggless Yellow Cake

3 cups flour
2-1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder,leveled
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1-3/4 cup of milk

Sift all the dry ingredients together, then the wet.  Pour into your small greased sheet cake pan (about 11-1/2″ x 8-1/2″) and bake at 375 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Frost with your favorite frosting or try mine.
